"Anthem" by Leonard Cohen

"The birds they sang at the break of day
Start again, I heard them say
Don't dwell on what has passed away
or what has yet to be...

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in"

Painted Desert

Painted Desert

We stopped at some of the native American reservations on our way from the Grand Canyon, and got this view of the Painted Desert. It was incredibly hot, dry and beautiful. The people selling the crafts were friendly and informative, and the desert was magical.

This part of the journey back East was my favorite. The American Southwest, and the Great Basin, are special places. Magical and powerful. I hope I can get back here without a car full of my belongings someday and really explore this wild land....

The butterfly? The beautiful painted Victorian houses in San Francisco that I left behind? The whores of the old West?

The songs....
